Israel said it expected “different behavior” from a key ally, after opposition lawmaker Tzipi Livni (pic above)was summoned for an interview with UK police. Livni was Israel’s foreign minister during a deadly conflict in Gaza.

Israel’s foreign ministry on Sunday criticized a request from Scotland Yard to interview former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni over suspected war crimes committed during the 2008-2009 conflict with Gaza.

The ministry said it intervened after Livni, an opposition member in the Knesset, received the request from the British Metropolitan Police’s war crimes unit ahead of her visit to the UK last week.

“We would have expected different behavior from a close ally such as the UK,” the ministry said in a statement.

“Israel will do all in its power to ensure that all of its citizens are not the subject of the cynical, political abuse of otherwise legitimate legal tools,” it added.

Tobias Ellwood, the UK’s minister in charge of Middle Eastern affairs, deemed Livni’s trip an official “state visit,” which would grant her diplomatic immunity, Israeli media reported.

Scotland Yard’s request for an interview reportedly sought to clarify her position during the 22-day “Operation Cast Lead” on Gaza, which left over 1,400 Palestinians dead, many of them civilians.

Thirteen Israelis were killed during the conflict, including 10 soldiers.

A British court in 2009 issued an arrest warrant for the foreign minister after an application was submitted by activists alleging she committed war crimes as foreign minister.

However, the UK passed an amendment of a law that put officials at risk of arrest for alleged war crimes in a bid to soothe strained ties with Israel.

The change effectively placed approval for private arrest warrants for offenses committed under certain international laws, including the Geneva Convention, under the chief prosecutor’s domain.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
